For the history of Christian art, wood is one of the most important materials: for centuries it has been used for temples, sculptures and icons. Contemporary Christianity, keeping pace with time and at the same time being true to tradition, finds its current appearance in contemporary art - so my wooden sculptures are born.
A series of client events took place in Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Gelendzhik. These were the cities where the fans of the British cars could test Continental GT Mulliner, Flying Spur V8 and Bentayga Speed.
The "Winged Letter B", the globally recognized logo of Bentley automobiles, symbolizes speed, technical excellence, and the superiority of this legendary brand's cars. The Bentley emblem resembles an ancient occult symbol of a winged solar disc and may have inspired the logo's design. In the 'Sunrise' sculpture, one can discern not just the famous winged logo. By rotating the central part, viewers are greeted with a rising sun adorned with golden rays - symbolizing the light of inspiration, intelligence, and readiness for new achievements.
The sculpture is crafted from a dry oak tree, over 200 years old. The wings are made from the surviving outer part of the oak trunk, and the disc is from a branch cross-section.
Candles are placed on the wings, accentuating the silhouette and visually creating an effect of effortless flight. Like the luxurious Bentley cars, each sculpture is handcrafted, demanding exceptional craftsmanship.
